STATE


Amendment 2 presents variety of issues


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

As a new president waits to be chosen and an exciting
electoral season nears its end, it's no surprise that many
of the provisions on November's ballot have gone largely
unnoticed.
Still, little media attention has been paid to one of this
year's closest and most contentious votes: the state's so-
called Marriage Protection Amendment.
The wording of the amendment is plain "Inasmuch
as marriage is the legal union of only one man and one
woman as husband and wife, no other legal union that is
treated as marriage or the substantial equivalent thereof
shall be valid or recognized." but the controversy sur-
rounding the proposed amendment has been anything
but.
Hundreds of thousands of advocates and opponents
have contributed millions of dollars to the campaigns sur-
rounding Amendment 2.
Politicians and religious leaders on both sides of the
debate have argued over the pros and cons of gay mar-
riage and civil unions.
Some have called the amendment a shield for the sanc-
tity of marriage; others, a misguided tool for discrimina-
tion.
But underneath all the rhetoric, contributions and
campaigning lies the heart of the issue, one that will be
decided within days by Florida voters like you: the law
on love.
Defenders of Tradition
The language of Amendment 2 is already three years
old, born in 2005 by Longwood-based political action
committee Florida4Marriage.org.
With Orlando attorney John Stemberger as a chairman,
the group's supporters compiled about 650,000 petitions
from Floridians, more than 7,500 of which originated in
Alachua County, to place the proposed amendment on
November's ballot.


iarani nsu / illlgaror ran
Shelbi Day, far left, American Civil Liberty Union's LGBT Advocacy Project staff attorney, discusses reasons why Amend-
ment 2 should not be passed during a panel at the Pride Community Center of North Central Florida on Thursday.


Using similar language to amendments approved in
27 other states, the amendment was written to reinforce
Florida law that marriages are uniquely beneficial bonds
that may only be granted to heterosexual couples.
"Ideas have consequences," wrote Stemberger in an


editorial ter the Orlando Sentinel in September. "And
the innocent-sounding idea of 'gay marriage' has con-
sequences that are more far-reaching to the transforma-

Officials respond to Gov. Crist's voting extension


* DAYS WERE EXTENDED TO
12 HOURS.

By LAUREN IRIZARRY
Alligator Contributing Writer

An executive order from Gov.
Charlie Crist extending early vot-
ing hours has garnered mixed
reactions across the state from
county election officials.
The order, which was an-
nounced Tuesday afternoon, man-
dated that all early voting polling
locations remain open until 7 p.m.


starting immediately and stay
open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for the
remainder of the week.
A letter on behalf of the Florida
State Association of Supervisors
of Elections was sent to Crist and
Secretary of State Kurt Browning
on Wednesday, stating that its
members acknowledged the or-
der but would have been better
prepared if it had been consulted.
Alachua County Supervisor of
Elections Pam Carpenter, who sits
on the board of directors for the
association, said public reaction
to the extended hours has been


positive, but it's made long days
for poll workers.
Some officials were given only
an hour's notice before the origi-
nal end of vot-
,2008W* ing to let poll
Presidential workers know
they needed to
stay late, said
Ann McFall,
the Volusia County Supervisor of
Elections.
"I wish he had not acted in
haste," McFall said.
McFall, who also sits on the
association's board of directors,


said officials were "blindsided."
The short notice was a problem
for a variety of reasons, including
cost, said Ron Labasky, the associ-
ation's general counsel.
Sterling Ivey, a Florida
Department of State spokesman,
said each county would be re-
sponsible for covering extra costs
from keeping the polls open lon-
ger hours.
Polling locations have also
created difficulties, said Jennifer
Edwards, the association's presi-
dent and the supervisor of elec-
tions for Collier County.


Because many early voting
sites are housed in public librar-
ies, supervisors were forced to
ask library employees to stay
later than originally scheduled,
Edwards said.
"There just wasn't a lot of
thought given to the operational
side of early voting," she said. "It
was rapid like 'Do it, and do
it now.'"
Ivey said the governor's of-
fice had no regrets in making the
decision to extend hours and that
it was "absolutely the right thing
to do."

Police plan for Halloween


By FAITH REAVES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Despite national statistics showing an
increase in traffic fatalities when Halloween
falls on a weekend, local police aren't par-
ticularly worried about today's holiday.
Motor vehicle fatalities rise an average
of 30 percent when Halloween falls on a
Friday, Saturday or Sunday, according to
data from the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration in a AAA news
release.
Gainesville Police spokeswoman
Summer Hallett said she does not expect
Halloween traffic accidents to compare to
game day weekends.
Although GPD officers would be on
the roads for Halloween, Hallett said there
would not be as many additional officers as
there would be for a football game.
Alachua County'Sheriff's Office spokes-
man Art Forgey said he didn't know if fa-


talities increased locally but said residents
tend to celebrate the holiday longer when
Halloween falls on a weekend.
The sheriff's office will be increasing pa-
trols to help deal with holiday pedestrians
and those who break the law, Forgey said.
The AAA release suggests drivers avoid
problems by staying away from residential
areas with large amounts of trick-or-treat-
ers and choosing a designated
Public driver.
Safety People throwing parties
could also keep a list of cab
drivers 6n hand and offer alternatives to
alcohol, it stated.
AAA Auto Club South and Budweiser
will also offer a free program from today to
Sunday providing a confidential ride-and-
tow to discourage drunken drivers from
getting on the road.
Drivers should call 1-800-AAA-HELP to
take advantage of the Tow to Go program,
which started in 1998.


Students sign tuition


petition to lower costs


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

A student group from the National
Education Association gathered about
600 signatures Thursday from UF stu-
dents who want to keep tuition low
during the country's economic crisis.
Members of an NEA student-run
program called "Got Tuition?" cam-
paigned on the Reitz Union North
Lawn for seven hours.
But the group may have been
preaching to the wrong crowd. UF
students pay the lowest tuition in the
country, said UF spokeswoman Janine
Sikes.
On a yearly average, UF students
pay about $3,000 lower in tuition than
other U.S. universities, she said.
Jermaine Coleman, NEA's Student
Program chairman, said the campaign
has visited about 100 college campus-
es across the U.S.


Coleman said every year, 400,000
eligible high school graduates don't
attend college because of the cost.
"It's a snowball effect," he said. "If
we could fix this problem, we could
fix the economy; we could fix health
care. They're all
related issues."
The NEA plans
to present the peti-
tion to Congress,
showing that this
issue affects stu-
dents across the
Slkes
nation.
"They'll see we're not just blowing
smoke," Coleman said.
However, Sikes said it is not likely
that the petition will have an effect on
UF or other Florida universities.
"The bottom line is that Florida tu-
ition is extremely low," Sikes said. "I
would be very surprised if anything
changed."

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Senate urges study of Amendment 2


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
Ibaker@alligator.org

In a special meeting
Thursday, student senators
approved a resolution that
urges UF students to consider


the "severe negative conse-
quences" of Amendment 2,
which defines marriage as a
legal union between a man
and woman and could affect
UF's benefits for employees
with domestic partnerships.
Senators decided to keep

Student Sen. Benjamin Dictor holds up a flyer from the LGBTQ
Cabinet during a meeting Thursday evening in Graham Gallery.


the resolution, which does not
take action, off of the agenda
Tuesday, but Orange and Blue
Party Sen. Benjamin Dictor
gathered enough signatures
from senators of both parties
to request a meeting to debate
the resolution.
The Student Senate met for
about two hours to discuss
and vote on the issue.
Although there was a stark
difference of opinion during
the first hour and a half of
debate, a group of senators
from both parties huddled in
a corner of Graham Gallery
during a two-minute recess to
reach a compromise.
What followed was unani-
mous approval of an amend-
ed resolution, in which the
last clause urging students
to vote against the amend-
ment was replaced with a
statement urging students
to educate themselves about
the issue's "severe negative
consequences."
Dictor, who represents the
College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences, said senators are
elected to take positions on
tough issues and should not
fear backlash from their con-
stituents.
"Yes, we have to stand up
to be counted, but we have
to stand up where it counts,
too," he said. "We are in no
position to pass this by."
Some senators argued
that voting on the resolution
would cheat the voices of stu-
dents they represent.
Gator Party Sen. Marissa


Martinelli, who represents
Jennings Hall, said approving
the resolution may give stu-
dents a reason to mock sena-
tors and call them biased.
Gator Party Sen. Jonathan
Fager, who represents District
A, said voting would open
a door for Senate to take a
stance on other controversial
issues.
"An issue like this
has no place in this
chamber, and it sets a
dangerous precedent."
Jonathan Fager
Gator Party senator

"An issue like this has no
place in this chamber, and it
sets a dangerous precedent,"
Fager said.
A letter stating opposition
to Amendment 2 from UF
President Bernie Machen that
ran in The Gainesville Sun
was read aloud by Alfredo
Pelicci, a UF political science
senior who has done work
with the resolution for the
last four months.
"President Machen did
not issue his opinion on
behalf of the entire student
body," Fager said, referring
to Machen leaving his formal
title out of the signature.
Pelicci urged senators to
let party divides go and take
a stance on the civil rights
issue.
"This is an issue of our
time," he said.


Car chase


ends in


arrest
A car chase that ventured through
the parking lot of the Gainesville Police
Department on Thursday ended with
an arrest and discovery of crack co-
caine,
At about 3 a.m., GPD Officer Joshua
Hinson heard the horn of a 1999 silver
Acura blaring for several blocks, a
GPD report stated.
The car turned from West University
Avenue onto Northwest Sixth Street
and almost hit the northwest curb of
the intersection, and Hinson began
to follow it, the report
Local stated.
News Ignoring police si-
rens, the car continued
north through the visitor
lot and the south lot of GPD headquar-
ters, driving over a curb, a flower bed
and grass, the report stated.
GPD spokeswoman Summer
Hallett said the car finally stopped
when Sgt. Bruce Giles laid down a stop
stick, a police device used to pop tires.
Police arrested driver Anthony
Graves, 58, reporting that he and pas-
senger Lisa Boudreaux had been fight-
ing over the steering wheel of the car.
The report stated that Graves had
a knife but threw it away when con-
fronted by police.
When the car was searched, officials
found traces of crack cocaine in the
driver's seat, the report stated.
"Graves was erratic enough that
he was possibly under the influence at
that time," Hallett said.

Candidates differ on higher-education platforms


* MCCAIN AND OBAMA SPLIT
ON STATE, FEDERAL CONTROL.

By DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Writer

A lack of concrete higher-educa-
tion platforms dealing with finan-
cial aid, student loans and college
admissions makes choosing a piesi-
dential candidate based on their
higher-ed platforms a tough call.
Some of Sen. Barack Obama's
plans aim to put control of schol-
arships and grants in the hands
of the national government, while
Sen. John McCain's plans intend
to give states a say over their stu-
dents' awards and scaling back
unnecessary spending poured into
research.
THE PROPOSALS.
For a 20-something looking for
relief from college debt, both can-
didates provide a modest model
for scholarship money, post-school
health care plans and tax breaks.
McCain added a list of bullets to
his Web site Aug. 14 that charted his
course for four years of privatized
policies. McCain wrote he would
work with governors to ensure
states are fulfilling lending require-
ments with student loans. He also
plans to eliminate earmarks, which
would ensure research grants are
given to legitimate university re-
searchers and not just pork barrel or
pet projects, according to his site.
Lynn Leverty, a UF political sci-
ence senior lecturer, said research
initiatives that are necessary de-
serve proper earmarks.
"Funding for special circum-
stances such as national' park
conservation or brain research at
universities, for example, is fine,"
Leverty said. "But earmarking
funds such as the famed 'bridge to
nowhere' proposals that may be
an unreasonable use of money."
McCain also wants to ensure tax
rates are low to allow the economy
to grow and provide a permanent
tax break for corporations that
spend money on research.
McCain doesn't provide any
national initiatives in his plan, but
he does plan to designate additional


tax money for student loans.
"For students on campus, the
biggest thing is that the govern-
ment makes sure that the financial
aid that they need is still there, and
they're not left out in the cold due
to the financial crisis," said Joshua
Simmons, Gators for McCain chair-
man.
The fundamental difference be-
tween both senators is that Obama
would like the federal government
to oversee and implement college
grants.
Conversely, McCain wants the
states to control
00~ programs like
AR2008 Bright Futures
Presidential or Georgia's
HOPE scholar-
ship because
they work more closely with stu-
dents and can administer programs
on a smaller scale.
Bright Futures is a privatized
program that is funded through
the Florida Lottery. Such privatized
programs may be more reliable over
the long run than federal grants,
said Ryan Pahota, UF College
Republicans secretary.
Obama plans to create an
American Opportunity Tax Credit,
a universal credit that would ensure
the first $4,000 of tuition costs is free
for most American students, who
would be required to complete 100
hours of community service.
"With the very same standards
that applied to us getting our Bright
Futures Scholarship, you can work
in a library, soup kitchen or even the
Peace Corps," said Eric Conrad, co-
chapter coordinator for UF Students
for Barack Obama. "And in return,
America pays for you to go to col-
lege."
The credit would mostly benefit
low-income students dealing with
paying off loans and the increase
of tuition.
"Obama was recently able to
pay off his student debts with the
sales of his first book 'Dreams from
My Father,'" Conrad said. "He
knows the effort we've had to go
through."
National scholarships such as
the Federal Pell Grant would in-
crease under Obama's platform.


Obama would continue to try to
increase the maximum Pell Grant
award of $4,050 to $5,400 over the
next few years.
Peter Laumann, volunteer co-
coordinator for UF Students for
Barack Obama, said changes to Pell
Grants are years overdue.
"A lot of my friends are going to
community college right now, not
because of their grades, but because
they can't afford to go to somewhere
like UF," Laumann said.
Pell Grants don't cover private
school tuition, and at an average
new award of $2,945 in 2008, they
rarely keep up with public school
tuition, according to the U.S.
Department of Education's Web
site.
McCain calls for the grants to
cover in-state undergraduate tu-
ition, but he hasn't proposed any
new money for the program.
"Both candidates should make it
an issue of lowering public school
tuition costs more than inconsistent
amounts of grant money dispersed,
which are insufficient," Leverty
said. "Higher education is just not


one of McCain's stronger issues."
'BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE'
One issue the candidates agree
on is simplifying the federal finan-
cial aid application process.
The Free Application for Federal
Student Aid, or FAFSA, is a multi-
page application used to determine
eligibility for federal aid, includ-
ing PLUS loans, Pell Grants and
Stafford Loans.
Conrad said students find the
aid process daunting and compli-
cated.
Both candidates plan to elimi-
nate this process by checking a box
on a family's tax form, authorizing
their tax information to be used, the
eligible federal financial aid would
be determined and eliminate a
FAFSA.
"It's an idea that has support
from both sides of the aisle,"
Laumann said.
Still, Leverty said a streamlined
application process doesn't solve
the accessibility of seats at univer-
sities.
"If this was part of a program


to increase access to universities,
then it'd be a much stronger ticket,"
Leverty said.
OTHER ISSUES
There are other policies related to
health care and job availability that
may interest graduating students.
Obama wants young adults to
remain on their parents' health care
plan until they are 25 years old so
they are insured when they go to
graduate school or get a job.
McCain plans to offer most in-
dividuals a $2,500 tax credit to the
health insurance company of their
choice.
McCain plans to establish a
permanent tax credit of 10 percent
of wages that are spent on research
and development in the U.S, which
would help provide an incentive to
innovate newer technologies and
reward activity within the U.S., ac-
cording to his Web site.
"Jobs in research are what a lot of
UF students would go into because
we're the flagship university to say
'We're the best and the brightest,'"
Simmons said.

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2008


Editorial
The Editorial Board cannot explain how welcome this
weekend is.
We've been freezing our Florida bums off all week. We still
can't feel our fingertips from the walk to our first period class
Wednesday morning, and our red noses have been running
longer than Forrest Gump.
That's why we're so amped for the opportunity to sleep in
this weekend. All we want is to snuggle up with a good book
and have a nice, toasty, relaxing weekend.
Normally, we would head to the bars in search of our li-
quor blankets, but nothing says "proper blood flow to every
extremity" like our beds. There isn't really anything happen-
ing this weekend anyway.
Kidding. We're only kidding. We know about The Fest, and
we bet it will be as awesome as ever.
Are we forgetting something? Who cares, it's time for this
week's edition of...



Darts & Laurels

To kick things off this week, we want to take on the
ObamaBot because, for a while, we were uncertain how to ap-
proach our mechanized, liberal friend.
First, let's give his creators a that's-not-exactly-what-we-
do-in-our-spare-time DART for having far too much time
on their hands. Gainesville has plenty to offer: rock climbing,
Lake Wauburg, rock climbing at Lake Wauburg the list of
options approaches infinity. We highly doubt that designing
a robot is more invigorating than climbing a fake wall by a
lake.
OK, that's not entirely true. Admittedly, we're a little jeal-
ous that we aren't mentally equipped to construct a robot,
which is why we also have to give the ObamaBot and its cre-
ators a thank-you-for-a-somewhat-hilarious-form-of-political-
activism LAUREL.
Seeing the ObamaBot on campus provided a shock initially
and then gave us a good laugh.
We loved the idea, and we're sure that the amount of work
put into the robot construction makes the ObamaBot worthy
of the attention it has received.
Next, we'll hand off a this-policy-would-make-us-consider-
going-to-Southwest-again LAUREL to UF for its consideration
of a campuswide bike rental program. Since we've moved off
campus, we have become frequent flyers at the Racquet Club
purely out of convenience.
If we could have access to a bunch of rental bikes courtesy
of UF, we might rediscover the west side of campus before we
graduate.
While we're feeling good, we'd like to pass a production-
through-persistence LAUREL to the UF College Libertarians
for their fight against a state law that would require them to
fight through a bunch of red tape just to have their voices
heard.
Libertarians are shoved to the political back burner in favor
of the two boss parties, so we think it's cool to see an outside-
the-box group fight for its right to speak about its preferred
form of government.
Now, we have to give Gov. Charlie Crist a jeez-don't-
break-these-people's-backs DART for declaring Florida in a
state of "voter" emergency.
Crist's action was intended to maximize state voter turnout
and reduce Election Day lines by extending polling hours for
early voting, but he didn't account for the strain that 12-hour
workdays would put on poll workers and stations. These
people need to sleep some time.
We also want to toss a you-guys-aren't-fooling-anyone
DART to Student Senate President Jordan Johnson for creat-
ing the Replacement and Agenda Transparency Committee,
the committee that officially has the power to do nothing and
say just a little bit.
On paper, your efforts are solid. In actuality, not so much.
Don't worry; you've got time to make a positive mark.
Hmmm. We still get the feeling we're forgetting something.
Oh, well whatever it was, it probably wasn't important.
Have a good weekend, and go Gators.

HALLOWEEN! WHO ARE YOU

DRESSING UP AS?


Paradoxical reaso
n the last 200,000 years, man has evolved from a com-
mon hominid to that of a god among all animals. We
have accomplished what the dinosaurs could not in
more than 165 million years. We have conquered all other
animals, save those at the most isolated depths of the
ocean. We have been to space, to our moon and are plan-
ning a trip to Mars, yet people live in fear of truth.
How can man be strong enough to wage war with
Mother Nature and so weak as to run from basic facts?
We all do it, whether it's the NCAA ignoring the prob-
lems with the BCS or Christians claiming the benevolence
of their own religion, even when a trek through history
shows horrors committed by devout Christian believers
rivaling, and surpassing, the cruelty with which Rome
treated their own savior. I run from the truth that I'm not
as smart as I believe I am.
Why do we fear the truth? For each of us, there's a dif-
ferent reason. Ultimately the cause of the fear is irrelevant;
what is relevant is the predictability of it. Each of us has
constructed our own world based on the facts around us.
We admit some of the facts, and we deny others so we may
further construct the world according to our wishes.
Thankfully, rationalists are extremely rare for our pur-
poses.
When confronted by a reality that shakes their con-
structed worldview, the vast majority of people undergo
a process called cognitive dissonance.
It's when we're trying to hold two contradictory ideas
simultaneously: Either one idea wins out, or we commit
a sin against thought and fail to recognize the contradic-
tion.
What happens during the process of cognitive dis-
sonance? Primarily, people become angry. Some become


ning spoils politics

Wes Hunt cruel and violent, either through
letters@alligator.org actions or through words, but most
letters@alligator.org just get angry.
just get angry.
It's a useful phenomenon and
easily predicted. I knew last week's article assaulting
the value that people put in college degrees would make


people angry.
My friends, who read it before it was published, told
me without hesitation it would. A dozen people decided
to tell me I was wrong because I was confronting them
with the idea that the degree into which they have put so
much money, time, effort and emotion ultimately won't
mean as much as they want to believe it will.
We see this phenomenon at work in the election, too.
As die-hard anti-liberals are confronted with the popu-
larity of Sen. Barack Obama and failing neoconservative
ideology, they are being forced to accept the destruction
of their own worldview, and it's making them angry and
irrational.
The problem is that this anger and irrationality is not
bor from a physical hardship. It comes from pighead-
edness and pride. Get over yourselves, people. Election
results will not cue the American apocalypse, so there's
no point in clinging to outdated ideals and contradictory
beliefs.
We can all benefit from predicting and recognizing
cognitive dissonance. We should help others work their
way through it, as it can be difficult and painful. Doing
so would force people to become more discerning in their
judgment of reality and more accepting of the process as
part of developing of one's understanding of the world.
Then, maybe, we can stop being afraid of the truth.

Letters to the Editor
Government should not define class
With only a few days to go, I find my-
self doing more than counting down the
remaining days until Tuesday's election,
when this country will decide together the
next president of the U.S.
I am also counting down to the day
when the middle class will be defined.
With cries of "socialism" and "spreading
the wealth" coming from the right, careful
consideration and certainly careful articu-
lation is warranted.
I can still remember the days when Sen.
Barack Obama's camp announced to cheer-
ing crowds that no one earning less than
$250,000 would see a dime of tax increases.
Earlier this week, Sen. Joe Biden ex-
plained in a television interview that tax
breaks should go to people making less
than $150,000 a year. That is a stark differ-
ence.
An even more curious moment was
when Obama detailed in his 30-minute
media buy, which seemed more like a
late-night infomercial than a professional
approach to policy, that families earning
$200,000 or less would benefit from his
tax plans. In a two-headed household, are
we at $100,000 per individual? Does this
include the teenage son or daughter that


works at the local mall?
As the cap is lowered seemingly by the
week, we need to wonder as Americans
whether those of us pursuing higher edu-
cation, success, wealth and fortune will be
penalized.
Will we be punished for striving for the
American Dream?
On Election Day, we will have to make
a historic decision as a nation standing to-
gether: not whether to elect the first black
president or the first female vice president,
but whether it is acceptable for big govern-
ment to define our class.
Americans, members of a nation with
historical distinctiveness and individual-
ism, should unquestionably have the op-
tion of defining themselves.

34th Street Wall deserves respect
Every day on my way to work, I pass the
graffiti wall on Southwest 34th Street.
I love to see a place where people can
freely express themselves through words,
artwork and birthday greetings.
It makes me absolutely livid to see a


certain part of this wall vandalized and
utterly disrespected. I am talking about the
"Remember" portion of the wall. This por-
tion was created in memory of those who
died in the 1990 Danny Rolling murders.
It is supposed to help this town remem-
ber and respect the victims and the family
members who are alive without them.
STo those of you who choose to be heart-
less and use this portion of the wall to write
your names, words or crude remarks: How
dare you?
You should be ashamed of yourselves.
Have you ever heard of common courtesy?
You have the rest of the wall to make
your statements. I don't believe the word
"vandalize" is written across the wall or
"please be inconsiderate; insert vulgarity
or idiocy here." It's mean and should not
be tolerated.
Freedom of speech should not make you
feel you have the right to be tasteless.
I hope you read this and think about
what you're doing.
To those of you who go out of your way
to clean up these horrible gestures, I com-
mend you.

Students should bet on UGA this weekend
As a lifelong Georgia Tech fan, former
Georgia Tech student and University of
Georgia graduate, I urge you to go to
any legal sportsbook and bet on Georgia
to beat UF and win the BCS National
Championship.
Why? Because Georgia is the best team
in college football.
They can only beat themselves by com-
mitting too many penalties or turnovers.
They have it all: a great quarterback,
great tailbacks and fullbacks, great wide
receivers and tight ends, an adequate and
improving offensive line, a great defense, a
great coaching staff, a great band and mas-
cot, and great fan spirit and support.
They are a smart, fast, strong, power-
ful, talented, deep, versatile and balanced
football team.
If you are a Georgia resident or fan, it's
time to "put some skin in the game" and bet
on Georgia to beat UF and go all the way.
If you do so, you will have fun and make
some money, which, in turn, will help your
local economy.

Historical odds lean toward 2


Panel talks marriage


By FAITH REAVES
Alligator Contributing Writer

With Election Day approaching,
a panel Thursday night encouraged
voters to look at the entire scope of
Amendment 2.
Four female panelists spoke to
about 20 people at the event at the
Pride Community Center, sponsored
primarily by Gainesville Area National
Organization for Women, or NOW.
The women represented three dif-
ferent organizations, but all spoke
against the amendment, which would
define marriage as a union between
one man and one woman.
Shelbi Day, a staff attorney for the
American Civil Liberties Union of
Florida, said the amendment "added
discrimination to the Constitution."
Day stated that the amendment
would affect all domestic partnerships,
including heterosexual couples, in ar-
eas of health insurance, medical deci-
sions, funeral arrangements and more.
Gaby Madriz, the Alachua County
field organizer for VoteNoOn2.com,
built on Day's facts, saying that 90
percent of the couples that would be
affected are heterosexual.


She encouraged the audience to
educate everyone on the consequences
of the amendment if passed, saying it
goes "way beyond gay marriage."
Jean Zeeb, a volunteer with the
VoteNoOn2.com campaign, changed
the subject.
"Why aren't we talking about gay
marriage here?" asked Zeeb, who said
Florida's ban on civil unions had taken
away her sense of social legitimacy.
The fourth panelist, Anna Guest-
Jelley, vice president of Gainesville
NOW, said empathy for
LOCal homosexual couples al-
News most stopped her from
marrying three years
ago.
Guest-Jelly said that marriage
should be based on love and that
"people can be trusted to make their
own decisions."
Guest-Jelley, who was involved in
planning the panel, said the event had
been in the works for months to raise
awareness with city residents.
In Gainesville, a city known for
being progressive, Terry Fleming, co-
president of the Pride Community
Center, said he thinks the amendment
"will fail soundly."


Sarah Hsu / Alligator Staff
Natalie Maxwell, president of Gainesville Area NOW and moderator for a
panel of women against Amendment 2, speaks Thursday night.


AMENDMENT, from page 1

tion of culture and society than anyone
would imagine."
Advocates contend that the amend-
ment would protect the traditional defi-
nition of marriage from activist judges
who they say could overturn the four
Florida statutes that outlaw same-sex
matrimony.
Additionally, supporters say the
amendment would decrease the preva-
lence of dysfunctional families due to
homosexual parenting.
"The question becomes, 'What is in the
best interest of children?'" Stemberger
wrote. "Children are happier and health-
ier and perform better in every category
when raised with a married mother and
father. And the inverse is true."
"Same-sex marriage subjects children
to a vast untested social experiment," he
wrote.
Calls made to Stemberger's law office
were not returned this month. A recep-
tionist who answered the phone at his
office said the attorney "doesn't usually
talk to liberal papers."
Although the language of the amend-
ment says nothing of religion or parti-
sanship, several Christian, Catholic and
Conservative organizations have already
spoken out in support of the definition
with their words and wallets.
Since 2005, the Republican Party of
Florida has donated $300,000 to the po-
litical action committee's more than $1.5
million in funds. The Florida Catholic
Conference gave $45,500; the Florida
Baptist Convention gave $63,000; and the
Colorado evangelical group Focus on the
Family donated about $24,250. Richard
DeVos, the multi-billionaire owner of the
Orlando Magic, contributed $100,000.
Perhaps because of these, contribu-
tions, amendment supporters have taken
a particular interest in campaigning
among churches.
Mailing-list messages have urged
pastors to "preach on some aspect of
God's Design for marriage" the Sunday
before the election.
Churchgoers have been instructed to
pray and vote early as a family.
Yes2Marriage Church Action Kits,
which cost $150, include stickers, signs
and a CD of sample sermons.
Yet even with this continued support,
the amendment is no sure bet.
A Mason-Dixon poll released Oct. 23
showed that 56 percent of its 625 "likely
voters" favored the amendment, with 7
percent undecided. A pollster told The
Miami Herald that, while the support
level is still below the required 60 per-
cent for approval, the undecided vote
could push the legislation into action.
The amendment is also facing rocky
ground in Tallahassee. While most
of the state's high-level Republicans
have endorsed the legislation, includ-
ing Attorney General Bill McCollum,
Sen. Mel Martinez and local Rep. Cliff
Stearns, Gov. Charlie Crist has stated
that he would not actively support the
amendment.
"I'll support it; I'll vote for it; move
on," Crist told the Orlando Sentinel last
month. "It's not top tier for me, put it
that way."
The Fight for Rights
Although the amendment may not be
a priority for the governor, the issue has
become a vital part of the election for its
opponents.
Detractors, organized under the
groups Florida Red and Blue and
Fairness for All Families, have rallied


in opposition to the proposed legisla-
tion, which they say will hurt unmarried
couples regardless of sexuality.
The legislation's vague language
could lead to the abolition of existing
civil unions and domestic partnerships,
which allow straight and gay couples to
share benefits such as hospital visitation,
Social Security and insurance, oppo-
nents argue.
Counties like Broward and Palm
Beach, cities like Tampa, Gainesville and
Miami Beach and numerous universities
and Fortune 500 companies statewide
offer benefits for recognized domes-
tic partners that could be stripped if
Amendment 2 passes.
"The ability of workers to bargain for
the right to share their pensions, health
care or other benefits with the people
they choose could be threatened," wrote
the Broward County School Board in a
resolution opposing the amendment.
"Limiting the rights or abilities of all
workers to receive the benefits they earn
and deserve and choose with whom
and how they share those benefits is
not in the best interests of any working
person and therefore any state."
"Same-sex marriage subjects
children to a vast untested social
experiment."
John Stemberger
Florida4Marriage.org chairman

Amendment detractors have experi-
enced support from the state's large local
newspapers all have called for a "no"
vote as well as from numerous con-
tributing citizens statewide. The cam-
paign has raised about $3.3 million to
oppose the amendment, much of which
has come from independent investors in
South Florida and across the country. The
Democratic National Committee con-
tributed $20,000 while the Washington,
D.C.-based nonpartisan Human Rights
Campaign has given more than $235,000.
Donald Burns, a multimillionaire former
chief executive of Telco Communications
Group, has given to Florida Red and
Blue more than $500,000.
Beyond the Border
Historically, the odds lean toward the
passing of Amendment 2. More than half
of the country, or 27 states, have passed
state constitutional amendments allow-
ing for bans on same-sex marriage.
In 2004, legislation worded similarly
to Amendment 2 that restricted mar-
riage to one-man-one-woman relation-
ships was resoundingly approved in
Mississippi with 86 percent of the vote.
Two years later, Wisconsin, Virginia,
Tennessee, South Dakota, South
Carolina, Idaho, Alabama and Colorado
followed suit.
Only one state, Arizona, denied the
marriage amendment although an iden-
tical amendment billed as Proposition
102 is being voted on again this year.
California voters, too, will soon
vote on similar legislation. Their state's
Proposition 8 has raised about $60 mil-
lion in contributions for both sides and
has been fought against by Republican
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and celeb-
rities, such as Brad Pitt.
Yet if there was any time for tradi-
tional voting precedents to be shattered,
this electoral season would be it.
The only thing anyone can expect on
Tuesday night, after the votes have been
submitted and Amendment 2 is ratified
or rejected, is the unexpected.

'Legal Strangers'


Amendment 2 opponents cite loss of benefits, right


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Jean Zeeb and her female partner were
used to having the legal equivalent of mar-
riage in Vermont.
But once they moved to Florida, Zeeb
said she felt their rights had been stripped
from them.
"Suddenly, my partner and I are legal
strangers to each other again," she said.
Zeeb is one of many Floridians, homo-
sexual and heterosexual alike, who believe
Amendment 2 is a direct threat to state part-
ner benefits, such as hospital visitation, in-
surance sharing and Social Security benefits.
"The political conversation is about
whether I'm human or not," Zeeb said.
If passed, Amendment 2 would dictate
that marriage is between one man and one
woman and "no other legal union that is
treated as marriage or the substantial equiva-
lent thereof shall be valid or recognized."
The amendment could become part of the
Florida Constitution if 60 percent of voters
approve it on Tuesday.
However, some partners living in Florida
see this amendment as a threat to their ben-
efits and rights.
Zeeb, 56, who lives near the Gainesville
area with her partner, Sabine Dickel, 41, said
people haven't been very welcoming of their
partnership.
Zeeb said someone posted a "Vote Yes on
2" sign at the end of the street where they
live.
"It felt very directed to us," Zeeb said.
Misguided on Marriage
Gainesville resident Mark Paris, who has
been with his male partner for 14 years, said
Amendment 2 makes him feel as if Florida
citizens are saying, "We don't want you. We
don't approve of you. You don't belong."
"It's painful," he said, "and it makes me
angry."
Gaby Madriz, the Alachua County field
organizer for the Fairness for All Families
campaign, which organizes the Vote No on
2 campaign, said many people don't know
about this amendment or are misinformed
about its consequences.
"It's not about gay marriage," Madriz
said. "Gay marriage is illegal now. It's going
to be illegal the day after the election."
Florida statutes already affirm that same-
sex marriage is not legally recognized in the
state, and the term "marriage" only means
a legal union between one man and one
woman.
UF women's studies professor Florence
Babb, who has been in a relationship with
her female partner for 10 years, said the
wording of Amendment 2 implies that mar-
riage has always been between one man and
one woman.
The amendment doesn't acknowledge the
diversity of human relationships throughout
history, Babb said.
"It tries to establish a narrative of the fam-
ily that is inaccurate," she said.
Benefits at Risk
Because the definition of the amendment
is so broad, Gainesville's domestic partner-
ship registry could immediately be at risk
because it states that no other legal union
equivalent to marriage will be recognized,
Madriz said.
The benefits that these partners receive,
such as hospital visitation privileges, fu-
neral arrangement rights and health insur-
ance policies, could all be jeopardized if the


amendment passes.
"It's just not right to involve a constitu-
tional amendment to define who you're able
to see in a hospital, who you're able to take
care of," Madriz said.
If the state approves the amendment, do-
mestic partnerships and unions equivalent
to marriage could be invalidated.
"People would go back to square one,"
she said.
Madriz said cities offering domestic part-
nerships could be sued, which could incur
high legal costs and take resources from
taxpayers.
Derek Newton, the campaign manager
for Florida Red and Blue, a political com-
mittee against Amendment 2, said a city like
Gainesville could be "hauled into court."
He added that a court could force
Gainesville into canceling their domestic
partner benefits and programs.
Babb said the domestic partner registry
is an indication that Gainesville is an open-
minded community, but the amendment has
the potential to be a serious setback.
"The town itself would be losing a bit of
its progressive orientation and its humanity,"
she said.
Not Just Gay Couples
Amendment 2 would not only pinpoint
same-sex partnerships; it could also affect
men and women who choose not to get mar-
ried but still want to be legally recognized.
"A lot of couples who are living together
in Florida are not necessarily gay couples,"
Madriz said.
Besides the repercussions for homosexual
couples, the amendment would also affect


senior citizens and other heterosexual part-
ners who share benefits.
For example, a senior citizen who has
been widowed and receives benefits from
his or her dead spouse sometimes doesn't
choose to remarry.
Many people decide not to remarry be-
cause they would lose benefits if they did,
Madriz said, so domestic partnership is an
attractive alternative.
"A lot of couples who are living
together in Florida are not neces-
sarily gay couples."
Gaby Madriz
Alachua County field organizer for the
Fairness for All Families campaign

In addition to affecting partnerships,
Amendment 2 could also leave its mark on
local businesses and schools.
Gainesville City Commissioner Craig
Lowe, who is gay, said Amendment 2 has
the ability to hurt domestic partner benefit
packages that some employers offer, includ-
ing the city of Gainesville, Alachua County
and UF.
He said it could also affect UF's ability to
attain high-quality faculty and students.
"It would make lesbian and gay people
feel unwelcome in the state of Florida,"
Lowe said.
UF associate English professor Kim
Emery said the university is already having
a difficult time recruiting and maintaining
faculty because of budget cuts.
UF could have an even harder time con-
vincing people to leave another country or


*S state where their families are legally
recognized units, Emery said.
Tom Auxter, the statewide presi-
dent for United Faculty of Florida, an organi-
zation that has represented higher-education
professionals since 1976, said universities
and colleges that don't offer partner benefits
are "irrational."
Auxter agreed that Amendment 2 could
have a negative effect on partner benefits,
such as health insurance packages.
The United Faculty of Florida, as well
as the Florida Education Association, both
voted to oppose Amendment 2.
"There is an awareness when it comes up
that this amendment does nothing good at
all," he said.
Judgment Day
Emery said she worries that people are fo-
cusing so much on the presidential race that
other ballot issues are getting overlooked.
People would have a different mindset
about Amendment 2 if it were presented
as taking away benefits from partnerships
and civil unions instead of being against gay
marriage, she said.
"It takes health care away from people,
from adults and children who need it,"
Emery said. "I just can't see the good in
that."
Zeeb, who is politically active and has
been knocking on doors for the Obama cam-
paign, voted no on Amendment 2 on Oct. 20,
the first day of early voting.
She said she sees Amendment 2 as a step
in the wrong direction when it comes to the
rights of Floridians.
"I should be able to love whom I want
and form a legal union with the person I
love," she said.

STATE

Judge puts law on hold


* COLLEGE LIBERTARIANS NOW
ALLOWED TO RAISE AWARENESS.

By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer
aasuaje@alligator.org

Afederaljudge declared Wednesday
evening that the state of Florida would
temporarily stop enforcing an elec-
tioneering communications organiza-
tions law for groups that raise political
awareness.
The law will be on hold until a later
court case determines whether it is
constitutional, the injunction stated.
A hearing on the law was held in
Gainesville on Monday after a lawsuit
stated that the law infringed on First
Amendment rights.
The lawsuit was filed earlier this
month by four groups across the state,
including UF's College Libertarians,
against both the Florida Secretary
of State and the Florida Elections
Commission.
Jennifer Krell Davis, spokeswoman
for Secretary of State Kurt Browning,
said the state is asking political aware-
ness groups registered as electioneer-
ing communication organizations,
such as the UF College Libertarians,
to contact the state to see if they are
eligible to "de-register."
Groups involved in campaigning,
rather than only raising awareness,
will still be required to register with
the state.
Davis said the Secretary of State


would continue to enforce campaign
code and other laws upheld by the
state of Florida.
"We will continue to do our duty in
defending the election code," she said.
Bert Gall, an attorney with the
Institute of Justice who argued against
the law in a hearing Tuesday, said the
injunction is a "tremendous" victory
for the First Amendment.
"Our clients and people across the
state of Florida are free to speak about
politics without fear of being pun-
ished," Gall said.
He said the case should continue for
the next few months until a judge de-
cides on the law's constitutionality.
"Now we just have to win," he
said.
Neal Conner, the president of the
UF College Libertarians and chairman
of the Alachua County Libertarian
Party, said he thinks the injunction is a
positive sign that the law will be found
unconstitutional in a final case.
"We expect the First Amendment to
be upheld," Conner said.
"The case itself is really a no-
brainer."

Electioneering communications or-
ganizations are groups that raise and
spend money to comment on political
candidates and ballot issues.
.The electioneering communications
act requires these groups to register
with the state and disclose all contribu-
tions and expenditures.

McCain supporters march on plazas, mob ObamaBot


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer
About a dozen supporters of Sen. John
McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin formed a
self-described "flash mob" on Turlington
Plaza on Thursday and had some fun at
the expense of ObamaBot, which was also
out campaigning.
They swarmed the student-made robot
with their signs, slapping a sticker or two
on the machine, then stood around and
watched it jerk and lurch for a couple
minutes before marching to the Plaza of
the Americas.
Bryan Griffin, the UF College
Republicans chairman and organizer of
the event, said the purpose of the mob was
to show support for the Republican ticket
and increase the visibility of conservatism
on campus not necessarily to antago-
nize the left-leaning robot.
He said the group plans to conduct
three more flash mobs before the election.
Andres Vargas, a mechanical engineer-
ing grad student who was operating the
ObamaBot with a handheld controller


when it was approached by the mob, said
he probably hit a few of the people unin-
tentionally with the robot.
"They swamped me and I was just like,
'Aaagh!"' Vargas said. "I couldn't see what
he was doing."
He said the robot was unfazed by the
incident.
"It looked like a rather petty at-
tempt to block what is a rather
well thought-out campaign idea,
the robot campaigner."
Craig Obenauer-Motley
UF nursing student

"They came, and they went, and he's
still here," he said.
Craig Obenauer-Motley, a nursing stu-
dent who watched the scene in Turlington,
said he was unimpressed by the mob.
"It looked like a rather petty attempt
to block what is a rather well thought-out
campaign idea, the robot campaigner," he
said.

AUTODYNAMICS: The New Paradigm in Physics and Cosmology


Autodynamics in One Page
1.- AD describes the universe as being governed by a Universal Law of Mass Decay-Energy Absorption, where
-mass and energy spontaneously change from one to the other. (Intrinsically, they are the same.)
2.- AD is a Quantum Relativistic Theory that follows Galilean and Newtonian common sense. Consequently AD
removes all the misconceptions of Lorentz and Einstein.
[No Big Bang No Einstein Cross No Black Hole No Length Contraction No Time Dilation No Space Curva-
ture No Aether- No Frame Dragging No Neutrino, http://www.autodvnamicsuk.orq/Suryer%20K.htm No Twin
Paradox No Failure of Simultaneity No Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle No Failure of "Cause and Event"
under Faster than Light Velocities No Increasing Entropy No Principle of Equivalence No Limit Velocity No
-Gravitation Propagation Velocity]
3.- AD is a theory that explains more experimental results and astronomical observations than SR and GR com-
bined.
[All Decay: such as Muon and Pion Decay -RaE Decay- Uranium Decay Beryllium Decay K-Electron Capture
by 4Be7 to produce sLi7 Linear Momentum Transfer in Nucleus-Nucleus Collision Better Compton Effect- Di-
rac's equation without Wave Mechanics Proton-Antiproton Collision Energy Loss by Electrons in Absorbers
- Perihelion Advance Binary Star Precession Bending of Light Faster than Light Allais Anomaly Extra
Gravitational Tug on Pioneer 10/11 spacecraft- Moon Receding from Earth.- Lageos Satellites]
4.- AD explains what Pauli found 9 years earlier: that Einstein's Kinetic Energy equation is wrongly applied to
Decay. Pauli postulated a "particle" to save SR. AD yields a new set of equations, which explain decay without
the Pauli's Ghost particle, dubbed Neutrino by Fermi.
[RaE(Bi) decay- Experiment result = 0.36 MeV- SR = 1.16 MeV- AD = 0.36 MeV.]
5.- AD supports a very simple, eternal universe: finite but unlimited, in perpetual evolution. The future universe
will be different from today's. AD has Universal Gravitation founded in a simple mechanism: Le Sage mundane
particle, the Graviton championed by Luis de Broglie. AD's Pico-Graviton plus the Kepler and Newton laws, with
the addition of AD's concept of Pico-Graviton absorption by matter (which we call gravitation), is a particular
case of AD's Universal Law of Mass Decay-Energy Absorption.
6.- AD shows that Einstein's mistakes come from the Lorentz Transformation. AD shows with Algebra that the
Lorentz-Einstein equations are mathematically correct, but physically wrong and do not explain many phenom-
ena in nature and, like Newton, SR and GR have a complete lack of mechanism or machinery to explain those
phenomena.

Quantum Universal Gravitation
Summary.
Quantum Universal Gravitation (QUG) is part of Autodynamics (AD), which is a New Paradigm in Physics and
Cosmology. It covers the Microcosm to the Macrocosm and provides New Perspectives of Historical import to
well-known concepts. The Quantum part is found in Le Sage's ultra-mundane particle, championed by Luis de
Broglie as the Graviton, and now dubbed Pico-Graviton in AD, which will open the path to the interstellar Travel.
The Universal Part is found by elevating the Energy Absorption-Mass Decay action (EA-MD) to a Universal Law.
This changes Thermodynamics and Celestial Mechanics to yield a Perpetual Universe in Constant Evolution. AD
explains what Newton and Einstein explain but also what they cannot: The Creation of Motion, the Allais Anom-
aly, the Moon Receding from the Earth, Pioneer 10111 Slowdown, the Non-Propagation Velocity of Gravitation,
the Non-Existent "Principle of Equivalence," and more.
Please, see the whole paper at: http://www.autodynamics.orqlpdflQuantumUniversalGravitation.pdf
FASTER THAN LIGHT
AD shows that the problem regarding superluminal velocity will be resolved by calculation using values
given by observational evidence or experimentally.
Ultimately, a direct Pico-Graviton velocity measurement will be reached.
The observation of JETs emitted at superluminal velocities by many stellar bodies in the cosmos will be
confirmed without any doubt The Tunneling Effect, the "communication" between electrons and photons, and
the Cesium experiment also showed the superluminal velocity in labs.
Two questions are pertinent here:
Which set of equations could be applied: SR's or AD's?
SR excludes itself due to the well know contradiction regarding simultaneously increasing Kinetic Energy
and Mass, which leads to non-conservation of energy.
AD does allow for superluminal velocity keeping in mind that the Kinetic Energy equation describes a decay
process.
What does this mean in this case?
This means that we need to remember that Me is the mass received by a gram of matter, but a larger quantity
of mass is needed before the decay in order to produce the Me value after decay.
See, please, the whole paper at: http://www.autodynamics.orl/pdflFasterThanLight.pdf


Autodynamics Derivation
For details see:
http://www.autodvnamicsuk.orgiFrancoAutodvna
micsDerivationl.htm
In Autodynamics, the coordinates x', y', z' and
the time, t', are only a function of t.
(x', y', z', t') =f(t) (1.17)
This is demonstrated as follows:
Each observer will deduce his own
coordinates in such a way that
X2 + y + z2 t2 = 0 (1.18)
x'2 + y'2 + z'2 c2t'2 = 0 (1.19)
Relating these measurements, we shall
always have for parallel axes:
x' = a v t, y' = y, z' = z, t' = a t (1.20)
Replacing and evolving:
a2 v2t2 + y2 + z -a2 22 = 0
y2 + z2 = (c2c2 av2) t2 (1.21)
Equalizing coefficients of t2 in equation (1.18)
and (1.21) we have:
a0c2 a v2 = c (1.22)
And a is given by


1
..
iO'


(1.23)

Pouncey: Georgia-UF 'probably bigger than any college football game'


FOOTBALL, from page 20

come down to. "It's going to come down to
a series of following the plan, whoever fol-
lows the plan on defense. Whoever plays
defense is going to win this game."
Stopping the run is going to be of par-
ticular importance, as Knowshon Moreno
is set to continue where he left off in


last year's matchup when he gashed the
Gators for 188 yards.
With a player as talented as Moreno,
the Gators realize shutting him down is
unlikely.
UF is hoping to simply limit his big play
opportunities rather than bring Georgia's
running game to a complete halt.
""It's big plays, obviously," defensive
line coach Dan McCarney said. "Moreno


had some big runs for, I miss, breaks a tackle and then he gets
think, 190 yards. That's down in the red zone."

cut down on and try to
eliminate from last year.

Stopping a great player comes with the
territory in a big college football game.
And the Gators are certainly willing to
admit that.
"This is the Florida-Georgia game,"
Maurkice Pouncey said. "This is probably
bigger than any college football game go-
ing on right now."


First Southeastern Conference defeat motivates No. 11 Gators to improve


VOLLEY, from page 20

the Gators with 27 assists in a match
where the offense struggled.
She said UF (17-2, 11-1
Southeastern Conference) will try to
spread the number of swings more
evenly between the outside hitters
and middle blockers, who didn't


show up in Athens.
Against the Rebels (10-10, 6-5
SEC) tonight, the setters and mid-
dles will have to communicate more
effectively if they are to collaborate
for more kills and take some pres-
sure off the outside.
Motivation will not be a prob-
lem.
The disappointment of defeat is


not something the Gators are used
to, and the team is committed to not
suffering another letdown.
"(The loss) meant a lot to us, all of
us hate to lose," Bathelt said. "We're
really ridiculously competitive, we
were like, 'Wow, that's not going to
happen again.'"
UF coasted through the first half
of its SEC schedule, but the Bulldogs


exposed some of the Gators' weak-
nesses, which the
team took as a
challenge.
In addition to
communication,
Volleyball UF's much-ma-
ligned blocking
must improve if the Gators hope to
refocus and make a late-season title


run, conference or otherwise.
"When you win all the time, you
don't get better from it, but once you
lose, you figure out what's wrong,"
Bathelt said. "Every single team
always has a chink in their armor
somewhere, and I think it took this
past weekend to realize what we re-
ally need to do to be a championship
team."

job) was too busy to participate.
Therefore, we figured maybe we'd'turn to our Athens
brethren to see how Georgia's student newspaper was
dealing with this ridiculous stuff.
When we went to the Red & Black's Web site Thursday,
we found a link to directions and cutouts for Georgia
students to make their own "Urban Meyer Dartboard,"
complete with Urban's face, a picture of jean shorts, a tear,
Tim Tebow, and the Gator logo.
Anyway, Michael Fitzpatrick, the Red & Black's sports
editor, said the Bulldogs players were not necessarily
under a gag order, they just said they knew UF would be
angry.
Uh, yeah guys, a bit of an understatement.
"Personally, I loved (Georgia's end-zone celebration),
because the past decade or so Georgia's been really up-

tight," he said. "It was something that opened them up."
We assume he was talking about the football game and
not ... well, we won't go there.
But credit is certainly due to Fitzpatrick, as he had the
guts to pick the Gators this week.
Now, on to the picks!
In first place, clinging to a miniscule lead with a 47-
23 record, is Assistant Sports Editor Evan "Give me Phil
Trautwein or give me death" Drexler, who will undoubt-
edly be crushed that this weekend's "road trip" will be
fewer than two hours.
Coming up second at 45-25 is Karl "I haven't used
slang since middle school" Hyppolite, who has officially
been "outblacked" by his sports editor.
Once again sitting in the middle at 44-26 is Phil "I
turned my phone off after the Rays' game to avoid harass-
ing text.messages" Kegler, who, we've got to admit, took
the loss pretty well. That's what he gets for insulting the
NHL. He'll be driving by himself to this weekend's game
because duh he's better than everyone else, baby.


Stuck in a tie for dead-ass last place with a record worse
than our random guest pickers is Mike "YMCA track suits
are back in style" McCall, whose winter-weather outfit
choices are questionable at best. We liked him better when
he was wearing hats from colleges he never attended and
a short-sleeve ECU shirt every other day.
Also in a tie for last place at 42-28 is Sports Editor
Brian "Doing poor imitations of black people is my call-
ing" Steele, whose black-person voice sounds more like a
grumpy old Cajun man. It's really, really pathetic.

Column


SITE: Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium (cap. 84,000)
KICKOFF: Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
TV/RADIO: CBS/WRUF AM850


Apparently this whole "no com-
ment" thing this week extends to-
more than just UF football players.
With one of the biggest UF-
Georgia matchups in history
looming Saturday, we here at the
alligatorSports Brand Picks column
wanted to take the opportunity to
remember a Georgia legend.
Longtime Bulldogs radio broad-
caster Larry Munson retired earlier
this season, after 42 years at the mi-
crophone.
For perspective, the man was
there for Georgia-great Herschel
Walker's first touchdown as a col-
lege freshman.
It seems the end of an era with
Munson and longtime UF supporter
Mr. Two-Bits hanging up their spikes
this season. Both are 86 years old.
Unfortunately, our attempts to
interview Munson were declined
by his son via e-mail, who said his
father is doing well and enjoying
retirement but "we haven't re-
ally done any (interviews) so I don't
want to open up everyone calling
him and me right now. It's really
died down right now, even during
FLA week."
We like to think we're big stuff,
but apparently appearing in our
picks column leads to numerous
other media outlets seeking inter-
views.
We wish Mr. Munson well.
For what it's worth, Mr. Two-Bits
happily answered every question
by reporters during-halftime of the
Kentucky game.
Just saying.
So we turned our attention to
Georgia's lovable mascot, Uga VII.
Since we guessed he doesn't
understand English too well, we
tried to interview Sonny Seller, his
owner.
He was quite nice, but unforta-
nately the big-time attorney (his day

UF FOOTBALL

Georgia game could decide SEC East


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

Despite the Gators' self-im-
posed silence this week, even
they will admit this weekend's
matchup against Georgia is
likely the biggest game of the


season.
The Gators (6-1, 4-1
Southeastern Conference) and
the Bulldogs (7-1, 4-1 SEC) will
not only be playing for brag-
ging rights after Saturday's 3:
30 p.m. kickoff. The winner will
likely find itself playing in the
SEC championship game.


"They understand because
it's Georgia or it's LSU," defen-
sive coordinator Charlie Strong
said. "They understand and
they know how important this
game is. They know this is an
(SEC East) opponent, and we
have to come ready to play."
This year's matchup comes

with a bit more hype than
in previous years following
Georgia's now infamous "Gator
Stomp."
Behind the steady stream
of "no comments," there have
been hints of a desire to get
some revenge. Despite what
he has said or isn't saying
- recently, coach Urban Meyer
"They understand and
they know how important
this game is. They know
this is an (SEC East) op-
ponent, and we have to
come ready to play."
Charlie Strong
UF defensive coordinator


made that clear when he blasted
the Bulldogs in his authorized
biography.
"That wasn't right. It was
a bad deal," Meyer said in the
book. "And it will forever be in
the mind of Urban Meyer and in
the mind of our football team....
So we'll handle it. And it's go-
ing to be a big deal."
Whether or not the Gators
are seeking a bit of revenge,
none of it will matter if they
don't improve on their porous
defensive effort from last year's
game, even if the offenses do
explode like many are expect-
ing in Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium.
"A big play, no," Meyer said
when asked what the game will

Bathelt's performances overshadowed


* THE FRESHMAN IS SECOND ON THE
TEAM IN ASSISTS.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

Night after night, the Gators trot out a slew
of physically captivating freshman point scor-
ers.
It is easy to recognize the value of their hard-
hitting kills or emphatic blocks, but harder to
appreciate the contributions of 5-foot-9 setter
Cindy Bathelt, who has cemented herself as a


Skey player in UF's rotation.
When the No. 11 Gators
attempt to get back on track
against Mississippi today,
the first-year facilitator will
be right in the middle of it
all, distributing the ball to
her teammates and running
Bathelt the offense.
"If Cindy were running a
5-1 at other schools and doing what she's doing,
I think she would get a lot more recognition,"
UF coach Mary Wise said. "She sort of stays
under the radar. The setter position is a very


other-oriented position. She's helping others
succeed, and Cindy has the perfect personality
for that."
Bathelt ranks only behind freshman Kelly
Murphy on the team in assists, averaging 5.6
per game, yet, often, goes unnoticed through
the course of a match because her role doesn't
require her to play above the net.
"She's a great athlete," senior middle blocker
Kelsey Bowers said. "Just because she doesn't
get the glory, that doesn't mean she's any less
of a player."
In Sunday's loss against Georgia, Bathelt led
